The lights are on
While the title is a bit of a fib – many of these facts had been discussed before – this new promotional video does tease some interesting functionality, including instant app switching similar to what Microsoft has promised on Xbox One.You'll also get a further look at the new PlayStation user interface, the PlayStation Dynamic Menu. It's intended to better unify the experience, from games to social features. It also confirms the news that you'll be able to access your downloadable games from other consoles. Other notable facts include the revelation that the 500GB hard drive is replaceable and upgradable (good news) and that the system is not region locked (yay!).It also says you'll be able to switch between apps like Netflix and gaming, which sounds a whole lot like the functionality that Microsoft has made so much of in its promotion of Xbox One. In any case, there are some more facts to learn, so watch below.

Saw this video when it was published...three days ago. Gameinformer, you tend to be late with your gaming news. I usually see stuff on IGN hours (or even days) before Gameinformer posts its equivalent news. I will admit though that Gameinformer posts some good exclusive stuff so I guess that makes up for it. On topic, there really wasn't much on this video that I didn't already know.
The PS4 keeps getting better and better.
My take on what Sony is doing is that they are releasing information in a set of 3. 1 the announcement so people get excited but hold back the actual console so the hype isn't gone and so that at E3 the hype for the console would be huge, 2 the showing of the console at E3, the 3rd and last one is the release date of the console I say they are doing this that way at each moment the PS4 is fresh in the minds of the consumer that way they can carry of a wave of anticipation at each level.
Lol there goes Xbox Smartglass's control on the mobile market.
caint wait for ps4!!!!!!!!!!!
now this is what I want from sony!
My god, this just makes it that much harder to wait.
I can't wait for the new consoles. I was going to get XBOX one because of it's amazing set of exclusives, but now I'm not sure. I'm just going to wait for reviews to see which console does more of what I want in the end. I don't want to buy a PS4 or XBOX day one and then find out there's something dumb about one of them.
Who ever made this video is awesome. This eased all the apprehensions I had about the PS4. I was unaware of a good amount of these features, and I'm glad I finally found out. Most of what was mentioned here was stuff that I knew the Xbox One had, but didn't know the PS4. This certainly solidified my stance on the next gen consoles, and I will be pre-ordering a PS4 as soon as more become available.
